Input sought on NS Protected Areas Strategy

Backlands map

Nova Scotians are invited to help shape the approach for protecting 20 percent of the province’s land and water by 2030.

An online public consultation started August 23, at the province’s Collaborative Protected Areas Strategy Engagement page.

The input will be used to develop the Nova Scotia Collaborative Protected Areas Strategy, which will outline how the Province will achieve its 2030 land and water conservation goals and identify next steps.

Update: potential blue-green algae bloom

A potential blue-green algae bloom had been reported at the dam end of Williams Lake. Not surprisingly, the water level in Williams Lake has risen 40 cm since Friday morning and is now 22 cm above the top of the dam and may still be rising. Lawson Creek has overflowed its banks but the path into the dam was still above the level of the overflow water this morning.
